IED The majestic old Cassino da Urca—Brazil’s most important entertainment center in the 1930s, at one point left to ruin on one of the city’s most spectacular sites—is now home to the European Design Institute. In addition to classes, open to all (even visitors), the IED stages events inside the structure and on its terrace, as well as in what remains of the old casino’s amphitheater, with everything from fashion shows to theater and concerts that will only get better with the auditorium’s complete renovation. Top off your Urca visit with a visit to the Sardinian-style café and restaurant.
